A drunken soldier in the Democratic Republic of Congo has opened fire on passers-by, killing at least 12 people and wounding several others.

One of the victims is reported to have been a two-year-old girl.

The shooting took place on Thursday in South Kivu province in the east of the country.

There have been angry protests against the Congolese army in the town of Sange, where many roads have been blocked.
